For this week's comic, we're delighted to introduce the first installment of Scott Brazee's HOPELESS, a modern adaptation of Dante’s Inferno. After being blocked from entering a downtown nightclub, Dante is approached by a Bowiesque indie rockstar who says Dante's girlfriend sent him to make sure he got in okay. They take the stage door and quickly find themselves immersed in a series of bazaar encounters that lead Dante to rethink what it means to be human.
Scott Milton Brazee's art has quite literally been all over the world. While traveling in South Africa, Scott was given the opportunity to create a large mural for the Umlazi BB Municipal Library, which changed his perceptions on the way art could be used to create a positive impact on the world around him. Scott graduated from Laguna College of Art in 2016 with a degree in Illustration; professionally, he has worked on several boundary-pushing projects, including Mark Z. Danielewksi’s ongoing book series The Familiar and Scott's own graphic-novel musical Moon Girl (under the monicker S.S. Odyssey).
Scott's influences include Windsor McCay, Michael Allred, Coby Whitmore and David Bowie.
